PolyJet is the most versatile and scalable amongst all the 3D printing technologies today with exceptional accuracy and smooth surface finish. Capable to build parts with 16-micron slice thickness for slender wall thickness and complex assemblies make the PolyJet technology 3D printers the obvious choice for any demanding prototyping application.
PolyJet additive manufacturing technology is the only technology to offer various physical and material properties in a single build with multi material options and various colour hues. The technology utilizes a wide range of materials from opaque rigid to clear or transparent flexible parts with varying shore values incorporated into a single build – mimicking the over moulding process of a traditional injection mould.
The patented PolyJet technology from Stratasys, works on the principle of inkjet printing as the liquid photopolymer resin is being jetted out on to a build tray through a print head and immediately cured with an UV light source. A gel like temporary support material upholds the overhangs or fill the voids during the part build and gets washed away by a water jet after the build process. The ready to use model does not require any post curing and offers amazing part quality with fine feature detailing, precision, and unmatched speed for quicker part realisation.
The Connex Stratasys 3D Printing platform of PolyJet technology allows the user to combine different materials to be printed simultaneously by jetting through multiple print heads. This feature enables to print the prototype sample to have distinct combination of two or more properties or colours with a rubber like feel or transparent parts with blended colostrum cyan to magenta of assorted shades. This capability to combine different materials makes it possible to simulate highly intricate shapes, colour shades and distinctive geometrical elements in the 3D printed part.
With over 180 digital 3D printer material combinations with various colour options to choose from – PolyJet Connex creates better product realism unparalleled by any other 3D printing technology. The ever-expanding Stratasys 3D Printer material range allows designers and engineers to simulate very detailed material properties that diligently resemble their intended end-product. This enables the users of PolyJet technology to be at the forefront of maximizing the benefits of additive manufacturing and 3D printing capabilities.
